Karen Gillan On Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 & Avengers: Infinity War Appearances, & That Skimpy Jumjani Outfit

20 January 2017 9:57 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Doctor Who alum Karen Gillan definitely has her plate full. But like any talent in Hollywood, Gillan has spent years working hard to get that hard work, so that’s probably a prospect she meets with a lot of joy. Not only will she be directing her first film — the formerly-titled Tupperware Party (now currently untitled) — next year, but she’s also set to hit the big screen as an actor in the Marvel sequel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and the adventure sequel/reboot Jumanji this year.

Gillan made her Marvel debut in 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy as Thanos’ badass daughter, Nebula — a mean-spirited woman with a real chip on her shoulder. We last saw the blue belle ripping a man from his spaceship and taking off, far away from the climax chronicled in the movie. As with ninety percent of the surviving Marvel characters, she was »

Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s Good Omens being produced by Amazon

19 January 2017 10:25 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

There’s only a couple months left until American Gods premieres, but already another of Neil Gaiman’s properties is coming to television. Amazon Studios has announced it has acquired his and Terry Pratchett’s Good Omens novel to adapt as a miniseries. It will premiere in 2018 on Prime Video for six episodes and will be released globally and exclusively on Amazon.

BBC is teaming up with Narrativia and The Blank Corporation to bring the series to life.  Gaiman is set to produce with Narrativia’s Rod Brown and Rob Wilkins with Doctor Who‘s Caroline Skinner and Fleabag‘s Chris Sussman. Gaiman will also write the miniseries himself.

“Almost thirty years ago, Terry Pratchett and I wrote the funniest novel we could about the end of the world, populated with angels and demons, not to mention an eleven-year old Antichrist, witchfinders and the four horsepeople of the Apocalypse,” said Gaiman. »

Terry Pratchett And Neil Gaiman’s Good Omens TV Miniseries Finds A Home At Amazon

19 January 2017 8:02 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With a premiere booked in for April 2017, the Starz adaptation of American Gods is currently garnering a ton of buzz, as Neil Gaiman’s fable of warring deities prepares to take that defining step onto the small-screen. But Gaiman is already thinking further afield, and we now have official confirmation that the author will develop a six-part miniseries based on Good Omens, the apocalyptic fantasy novel he co-wrote alongside the late, great Terry Pratchett.

Almost a year on from the moment Gaiman began work on the adaptation, Amazon has now struck up a deal with the BBC to bring Good Omens to television. A 2018 release date is the target, when Gaiman’s six-part series will premiere globally via Amazon Prime soon after its UK debut on the BBC. Former Doctor Who producer Caroline Skinner will help executive produce this new series, joined by Chris Sussman, Rob Wilkins, and Rod Brown. »

Step Back, We Have Another Infinity War Confirmation

17 January 2017 12:09 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Ok, I have already given a warning "be prepared for these" and every time an actor gets confirmed for Infinity War, usually by their own doing, it is our duty to report it to you. We have another today as Nebula, played by Karen Gillan, has confirmed in a quote with the BBC (gasp) that she will indeed be in Avengers: Infinity War.

And then I’ll be making a little appearance in the next Avengers movies.

Boom. Confirmed.

However, let's examine the aspect of this sentence, "Making a little appearance." Will this be a 20 second appearance, a flashback, or perhaps a quick death scene? Or maybe she is underplaying it and she is a huge part. We will know more in a few months when one of my favorite franchises of all time, Guardians Of The Galaxy, returns.

Nebula is one of Thanos' daughters, along with Gamora. He has »

On the heels of “The Crown’s” win at the Golden Globes, the world’s fascination with the British royal family continues unabated. PBS enters the fray with “Victoria,” the tale of the original long-reigning queen who is the great, great grandmother of the Queen Elizabeth we know now.

Sherlock Promises It’s Not A Game Anymore In Explosive Episode 3 Teaser

13 January 2017 12:17 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There’s a very good chance that the series (and season) finale of Sherlock airs this Sunday, January 15. Due to their busy schedules, Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman can’t commit to the British mystery show as they once could, and that’s without mentioning creator Steven Moffat’s other projects like, you know, Doctor Who. But they’re not going to end it on a whimper. Oh no. Based on the teaser for Sunday’s episode, which you can see above, they’re going to end the detective series with a bang. A big one.

Judging from this brief, 20-second clip, Sherlock is going to conclude its fourth season with an intense, emotionally-charged finale that undoubtedly tests the limits of Sherlock (Cumberbatch) and Watson (Freeman) in their darkest hour. That the trailer ends with an explosion, quite literally, might upset those who like the grounded, contemplative TV series as it is, »

Bedroom Door Locks and More: 5 Things to Know About Queen Victoria and Prince Albert’s ‘Full-On Passionate Marriage’

13 January 2017 8:05 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Victoria was the teen queen who went on to have the longest reign until Queen Elizabeth passed that milestone in September 2015. And just like Elizabeth, Victoria’s youth and determination aided her well early in her reign. “Victoria was tiny and very, very strong willed,” say historian Daisy Goodwin, the creator of the PBS/Masterpiece drama Victoria, which premieres January 15.

And those characteristics are attracting a new wave of fans of the show, which stars Dr. Who’s Jenna Coleman. “Most period dramas are watched by the over-50s, but in the U.K., this has the youngest demographic of any period drama ever, »

Victoria was first aired on ITV in the UK on August 28, 2016.

Phipps says: “The idea was to give Victoria a dynamic voice, an explosive theme through which we could rejoice in her strength & courage. The Mediaeval Baebes were the perfect sound for this. With one foot in the classical world & one in the commercial, they gave Victoria the mixture of refinement & attitude I was after.”

TV Review: ‘Victoria’ on PBS Masterpiece

11 January 2017 10:30 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“We must not let in daylight upon magic,” British essayist Walter Bagehot once wrote of the English monarchy, and Queen Victoria in particular.

“Victoria,” which is based on a novel about the famous monarch, doesn’t just bathe its subjects in golden daylight; there’s plenty of evocative candlelight, too. “Victoria” depicts life behind the scenes in a series of well-appointed palaces and lush gardens, but would-be Bagehots have nothing to fear: Admirers of Queen Victoria could hardly hope for a more flattering portrait. The problem with that romantic — and romanticized — approach is that this Masterpiece miniseries can get so bogged down in admiration for its core character that it begins to meander, and it often sands the edges off conflicts surrounding the early years of the young queen’s reign.

The result is a miniseries that’s easy on the eyes and generally more interesting when capable actors like Jenna Coleman, who »

We've scoured The Lying Detective for details and noticed a few interesting titbits. Spoilers ahead...

Once again, we’ve clued for looks in the latest Sherlock episode The Lying Detective and noticed some fun details and references to the original Sir Arthur Conan Doyle stories. Here goes…

1. The episode’s very first shot of a smoking gun – which we assume is that of Vivian Norbury in The Six Thatchers as remembered by John Watson – is actually the gun shot at John Watson by Eurus Holmes in the episode’s final shot. (The same shot also features in the series four opening credits and is briefly edited in to the scene of Sherlock and ‘Faith’ sitting by the Thames after he’s thrown her gun into the water.)

What a circus that was; acrobatics, dangerous creatures, clowning, surprise turns, high-wire danger… the lot. By the time the end credits rolled, you were left feeling enjoyably concussed, the sheer ‘whomp’ of it having sent cartoon stars spinning around your head. 

Once the ice-pack had been applied and you could see straight again, did the story stand up to prodding? Not all of it perhaps, but in the lurid, implausible realm of Sherlock Holmes, originally filled with putty noses and poison darts, who’s counting?
